Please proceed with your query
Good morning doctor
Hasn't it subsided until now?
Did you take any medicines for it?
I have taken 2 sinarest tablets and few Lecocet. It has not subsided and today the flum is slightly yellow
The tablet i took is Levocet
If you do not have fever, then it is a good sign
It does not indicate an active infection
You have to continue the Levocet for few more days
One more thing is I'm travelling to Coorg on a weekend_ Diwali vacation. So wanted to take precation before starting
Do steam inhalation and salt water gargling as well
BE careful about the water
ok. i have been doing steam inhalation with carvol + last two days in morning
Better to carry your own water
Make sure you drink sterilized water
You may need a course of antibiotics if your symptoms do not subside in a few days
Eat bland food
more of fruit juices
Wash your hands frequently
Keep yourself warm
That should be fine
You will be safe
since the flum is yellow should i start the atibiotics and if yes, which one should i take.
I will not suggest antibiotic now
since there is no fever
Please wait for 2 to 3 days
You may take a call on the antibiotic later
You may Azithromycin
It is an effective drug
Levocet is the one which will help you to get over nasal congestion and cold
It is an anti-histamine
clears the nasal passage
ok. I'm take i each after after food morning and night . is that suffucuent
it is sufficient
and i dont have to take sinarest right?
Sinarest is not required
ok Thank you doctor. is there anything else?
Thank you too
Follow the suggestions I mentioned
Do you have more queries?
one more question. is the yellow flum OK? when do i have to worry about if it has become infectious?
If you develop fever along with the yellow phlegm
ok. Thank you doctor. Happy Diwali to you and family. bye.
Bye for now
